Here is the injury update on Indiana freshman basketball player Stanford Robinson after he was helped off the floor in the closing minutes of Friday night’s Hoosier Hysteria scrimmage.
It’s unclear how long he’ll be out but right now he joins Luke Fischer (shoulder), Troy Williams (hand) and Noah Vonleh (ankle) on the IU injury list of incoming freshmen.
Here is the release from the IU website regarding Robinson’s situation:
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Freshman Stanford Robinson who left Friday night's Hoosier Hysteria scrimmage after injuring his right knee, is beginning treatment, daily evaluation and will be out indefinitely. He participated in team activities with the Varsity Club prior to this afternoon's football game against Penn State and was dressed at practice.
"Stanford is a very unique, unorthodox type of player, said Coach Tom Crean at his State of the Hoosiers speech Wednesday evening. He can do a lot of different things. He can handle the ball. He is as good of a downhill player as we have right now outside of Yogi when it comes to playing the game and going straight line straight downhill."
The Hoosiers open the exhibition season in three weeks against Southern Indiana, October 26 at 7 p.m. in Assembly Hall.
